What is Paretic Propulsion, and Why Does it Matter?

Watch this highlighted clip to hear from Kathleen O’Donnell as she takes us through an exercise to help us understand the relationships between ankle plantarflexion, trailing limb angle, and forward propulsion in the gait cycle, and highlights why it is so important to retrain for effective propulsion symmetry in patients post-stroke.

These principles are the foundation of the ReStore Exo-Suit, which helps to train effective plantarflexion function and timing for patients undergoing clinic-based gait rehabilitation after a stroke.

You can learn more about the ReStore Exo-Suit on the ReStore product page.
